Unknown armed militiamen have kidnapped four traditional elders in a village near the southern port city of Marka on Thursday night, local residents said.

Speaking with Radio Shabelle over the phone, Mohamed Ahmed who is a local elder said the abduction happened after gunmen stormed a house at El Jaalle area last night.

“Last night, 4 elders were snatched from their house in El Jaalle by unidentified armed assailants, we don’t know reason behind the abduction,” Ahmed added.

He said the fate of the kidnapped elders remained mysterious, and not know why they were targeted. The area has been the scene of clan clashes in the past few years.
